Forum: freecache Subject: problems after I unzip (Mac)

I spent all night downloading a show (1.2G shnf.zip file), but when I unzip it, there's no files in the .shnf folder. I assume I downloaded something, because the zip file is 1.2G. I'm on a Mac and am using StuffIt, not that I think this should matter, but just want to be clear. I'm new to this and definitely want to take advantage of all the music that's out there. Any help is much appreciated.

My guess would be that the download got interrupted. Which show is it?

hey, i am having this same problem. 2 different shows, sound tribe sector 9 9/6/03 and percy hill 2/18/99, when unzipped with stuffit expander, both produce an empty folder. i have the newest version of stuffit, I checked. and I don't think the downloads got interrupted, because I was here the whole time they were downloading.

any ideas?

I can't get my .shnf to unzip

"type unzip file.zip"

Is terminal the only way to unzip .shnf?

It defaults to
BOMArchiveHelper

After it runs for like 5 min, it just disappears.

Any help would be great.

Here's the file name
logic2001-09-10.dpa4022.shnf.zip
